I know, we usually have steak on Saturday nights, but after a long day relaxing day on the Shenandoah River, we went home and ate seafood. It was a seafood Saturday Night!
David and I spent a good portion of this past Saturday on a canoe in the Shenandoah River. It is our favorite place to be when it is hot outside. Saturday was 100 degrees, so there was no place better to be.
We went to a different portion of the river that we had never gone before. It was just as pretty as all the rest of it and the fishing was pretty good too!
We stopped on an island in the middle of the river for lunch. Along came a not so itsy bitsy spider. He was in the back of the canoe the entire morning with David. We rescued him and set him free on the island.
We finished our river trip around 2:00 p.m. and had no clue what we were going to cook for supper. It was too hot for grilling anything (like a steak for Saturday night). It’s been almost two years since we last went to the beach. We’ve been talking about taking a quick trip. I guess that’s why we have been craving seafood. We took a chance and went by one of our local grocery stores to see if maybe they had some wild caught something. We were in luck! We purchased a pound of shrimp and a pound sea scallops and whatever else we needed to make a seafood feast at home.
It was too hot for deck time when we got home. So we watched t.v. and took a nap while I simmered a small pot of butter beans seasoned with smoked side meat, of course.
After our nap we prepped our meal. We started by wrapping bacon around the sea scallops.
After they were ready to pop under the broiler we started our shrimp boil.
We peeled and deveined the shrimp while bringing the corn to a boil.
We put the scallops under the broiler and dropped the shrimp into the boil.
Before we knew it, we had a wonderful seafood feast with wine included!
Even His Royal Highness was excited about this meal and took his seat in a chair near the table.
Once we finished eating and cleaning up the kitchen, it turned out to be ideal deck sitting time.
Another beautiful Saturday in the Blue Ridge Mountains!
